Synthetic Benchmarks

The Moto Z Force features Motorola's 'Mobile Computing System' which joins a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Central Processing Units (CPU) and Adreno 530 elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (dual-core 2.15 Giga Hertz (GHz) Kyro & dual-core 1.6 Giga Hertz (GHz) Kyro) with a Natural Language Processor and Contextual Computing Processor. There is also a healthy 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

Likewise, the Snapdragon 820 is quite the improvement over the Central Processing Units (CPU) found in the Moto Z's predecessor: the Moto X Pure Edition (A.K.A. Moto X Style), which sported a 6-core Snapdragon 808 CPU.


The Snapdragon 820 is found in several flagship phones this year like the LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, and HTC 10. All of these phones will perform similarly with some phones perhaps outperforming others with different speeds of Random-Access Memory (RAM) or internal storage speeds for reading and writing.

We've also tossed in a couple of phones that utilize alternative-Central Processing Units (CPUs) like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Exynos 8890) and iPhone 6S Plus.

Starting off with single-core power test, the iPhone remains at the top in these tests. It's no wonder the iPhone 6S only has a dual-core CPU, that's likely all it needs to power through its super-optimized software. Behind the iPhone are three Snapdragon 820 Central Processing Units (CPU) powered phones. The Moto Z Force was in line with the other Snapdragon 820 devices of the bunch.

Next up with graphics, the Moto Z carries the Adreno 530 for hardware-intensive rendering, as do the other Snapdragon 820 phones of the bunch. The offclassy screen test ensures an even playing field for devices that might differ in classy screen resolution. The Moto Z Force performed correct at or above the other Snapdragon 820 devices.

The other Snapdragon contenders did just as well with a marginal difference. The Exynos-powered S7 edge is correct behind the Snapdragon 820 pack. Qualcomm's Central Processing Units (CPU) setup shines here in the gaming and graphic-intensive department.

Keep in mind that onclassy screen tests will yield different results. The Xperia X Performance, OnePlus 3, and iPhone 6S Plus all have significantly fewer pixels that need to be pushed around. These devices, in turn, will perform better than the QHD offerings.

The older Baseimprint X performance test yielded top results for the Moto Z Force. The Exynos-powered S7 edge also is just behind the rest of the Snapdragon 820 devices.

Remember that Baseimprint tests hold into account other aspects of performance like storage and Random-Access Memory (RAM) speeds. This helped in favor of the Moto Z Force.

Baseimprint ES 3.1 measures the phone's OpenGL graphic performance. The results are a mixed bag. The iPhone 6S Plus leads the pack with the Exynos-powered S7 edge behind a large gap. The Moto Z Force comes in correct after the Exynos S7 edge. The Xperia X Performance, OnePlus 3, and Snapdragon-powered S7 edge all scored lower despite having a similar Central Processing Units (CPU) setup.

The Moto Z Force runs a bit warm when performing high-activity tasks like playing a hardware intensive game or updating a bunch of apps at once. But it gets the hottest when playing a GPS-intensive game that also uses the capturing camera like Pokemon Go. The Snapdragon 820 is a remarkable and crazy quick CPU, don't acquire us wrong. We love the performance on the Moto Z Forceand it performed exceptionally well and we saw no visible lag anywhere even in high-performance games like RipTide2.
